    Malicious Government Prosecution

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2013

  2. Scholarpedia
    Resource Type: Website
    Scholarpedia is a peer-reviewed encyclopedia written by the leading experts in their respective fields. It does not publish "research" or "position" papers, but rather "living reviews" that will be maintained by the future generation of experts via the process of curatorship. The (ambitious) goal of Scholarpedia is that of being an understandable and useful encyclopedic reference for scholars of different levels.

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2016

  6. Will Google's Keyword Searching Eliminate the Need for LC Cataloging and Classification?
    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2005
    Google Print does not "change everything" regarding the need for professional cataloging and classification of books; its limitations make cataloging and classification even more important to researchers. Google’s keyword search mechanism, backed by the display of results in "relevance ranked" order, is expressly designed and optimized for quick information seeking rather than scholarship.
